Spitfire Audio co-founder Christian Henson gives you his best pointers to overcome impostor syndrome and create outstanding cinematic drum compositions using our new drum & percussion library: Hammers.
Created in collaboration with composer Charlie Clouser (Saw films, Resident Evil: Extinction, Nine Inch Nails) Hammers is a selection of explosive drums, inspired by Charlie’s extensive experience in film scoring, rock, and industrial production. Featuring more than 1,000 sounds across 58 drums, including detailed hits, ensembles, performance loops, and genre-bending warps, recorded in Charlie’s personal studio, a Brutalist space made of concrete, glass, and steel, allowing for a uniquely sharp attack and controlled reverb.
